About Premium New Zealand

A group of long-timers in Japan, all from New Zealand, started to muse about the lack of any kind of forum in which we could openly express our love for our country.

We had also grown tired of trying to explain what a UMF number on Manuka honey means and why New Zealand's finest honey is so expensive! 

It was exasperating for us to learn that many of our Japanese friends did not know that Zespri is New Zealand's branded kiwifruit and that a kiwi is a person and a bird but not a fruit to us. #firstworldproblems

The more we talked the more we realised that while Japan has been an amazing home for us, there is only one place we truly call home and it's New Zealand. We simply want you to learn about this stunning country and love everything it has to offer the world.
